iFit, the leader in interactive connected fitness, will host "A Sunrise Trek on Everest," a first-of-its-kind, live-streamed workout from Mt. Everest on Monday, March 22, 2021 at 8 p.m., EST.
The approximately 30-minute virtual hike—available via the iFit app as well as iFit-connected treadmills and ellipticals—will lead viewers up Kala Patthar, an iconic trail at 18,300 feet with breathtaking views of Everest’s summit

“A Sunrise Trek on Everest” will be available to iFit members and non-members alike:

• For iFit’s 4.7 million members, to stream the Live workout, tap the “On Air'' icon on the iFit user interface of the iFit-enabled equipment or the iFit app. Select “A Sunrise Trek on Everest'' up to 10 minutes before the live workout begins.

• Non-members can access the workout through a 30-day free trial of the iFit app, available on iOS and Android. Once the app is downloaded to their phone or tablet, they simply select the “On Air” icon to join up to 10 minutes before the live workout begins.

• The live workout begins streaming on Monday, March 22, 2021 at 8 p.m. EST to coincide with sunrise on Mt. Everest

• iFit Guides Kenton Cool, Lydia Bradey, and Ang Tshering Lama—Everest-experienced guides and mountaineers—will lead the workout

• iFit members can add the workout to their iFit schedule beginning March 16

• “A Sunrise Trek on Everest '' will be added to iFit’s on-demand workout library following the live workout

• Due to streaming capacity in the remote and high-altitude Mt. Everest region, capacity for the workout will be limited

If readers own or have access to an iFit-connected treadmill or elliptical from a brand like NordicTrack, ProForm, or Freemotion, the virtual experience will be unlike anything else: One of iFit’s claims to fame is its patented LiveAdjust technology, which automatically increases and decreases compatible equipment’s incline, decline, speed, and resistance during workouts. During “A Sunrise Trek on Everest,” iFit will automatically adjust the incline of these machines in real time to match the actual terrain of the trail on Everest!

Meet the iFit Guides
Kenton Cool: Cool has summited Mt. Everest a total of 14 times in his mountaineering career, once reaching the daunting peak twice in the same week.
Lydia Bradey: Bradey is the first woman to successfully summit Mt. Everest without supplemental oxygen. She is also the only woman to have successfully guided a group of climbers to Everest’s summit five times. 
Ang Tshering Lama: In 2017, Lama—a passionate climber and philanthropist—was part of the world’s highest-altitude rescue, during which he and his team saved two climbers at 28,215 feet elevation on Everest. 

“Everest: A Trek to Base Camp” Series
A 12-person iFit team is currently on location on Mt. Everest, filming an 18-part iFit workout series titled “Everest: A Trek to Base Camp.” The series, scheduled to release late spring 2021, consists of steady-state cardio treks with New Zealand mountaineer and Everest summiter Lydia Bradey, exhilarating climbs with expert alpinist Kenton Cool, and active recovery sessions with adventure enthusiast Ang Tshering Lama. In addition to the workouts, members can look forward to learning about the history and culture of Nepal as they soak up the scenery and make their way to Mt. Everest Base Camp.
